The in-game pop up gives a brief description about cold:
You're cold, which is hard on your energy level.
Natural shelters and even some food could help.
Cold isn't fatal but saps your energy and ability to coordinate your actions. Everything is tougher to complete when cold.
The longer that you expose your hominid to conditions that induce hypothermia, the quicker that you will encounter the Cold status effect.
- Cold is encountered when it is raining. Cold is also found late at night in areas like the Savanna where the temperature drops when the sun goes down.
- Find a shelter that stops you from being rained on and cold will disappear. This isn't a single tree or bushes. You have to have substantial solid cover above your head to stop the rainfall so you can dry out. For areas that get cold at night, you need to find an oasis that provides protection from the elements. An enclosed space that doesn't allow the wind and low temperatures to drain your hominid.
Important: Your clan members may suffer from cold without you noticing, so keep an eye out for visual signs of discomfort!
Medicines able to stop the cold condition:
Be aware that protections run on a timer and will eventually run out. The protections will also reduce by the amount of damage they stop. Your hominid won't be harmed but the protections will go down instead. You will need to add more protections over time to ensure you aren't going to be harmed by afflictions.
